Liquid Telecom has named Reshaad Sha as CEO of Liquid Telecom South Africa, effective as of 1 June 2018.
In his new role, Sha, the South
African national will oversee the growth of digital services
and the deployment of enhanced network services for enterprises
and consumers across the country.
Commenting on Sha’s appointment, Nic Rudnick,
Group CEO of Liquid Telecom, said: "We’re
delighted to have found such a talented and skilled individual
to fill this role. Reshaad’s entrepreneurial
spirit and dynamic leadership make him the perfect addition to
the Liquid Telecom Group as we continue to deliver on our
vision of building Africa’s digital future."
Prior to joining Liquid Sha held the position of CEO at
SqwidNet, an open access Internet of Things network operator.
Before that he served for five years as chief strategy officer
and executive director of the open access fibre-optic company
Dark Fibre Africa. In addition to this Sha has extensive
international management experience having worked for the likes
of Cisco and LogicaCMG.
To date Garth Schooling, Liquid Telecom’s
managing executive of new business development, has acted as
interim CEO since former CEO Kyle Whitehall left the position
in March, and Schooling will remain in the role until Sha
assumes the position in June.
Only last month Liquid Telecom partnered with
Metaswitch to expand the voice and Unified Communication and
Collaboration (UC&C) services of the group. The voice
service expansion will pan six countries in Africa and will
include the following Metaswitch solutions, including: its
Clearwater vIMS Core, Perimeta vSBC, Service Assurance Server
